The headline gives you the perfect chance to get your reader’s attention and to lure them into opening your article/post.
It is no secret that creative headlines result in a higher number of clicks, which helps you generate more views/traffic. Most times, a headline is the first thing your readers see unless they go for the summary or the description first. Therefore, the headline gives you the perfect chance to get your reader’s attention and to lure them into opening your article/post.
If you take a look at any advertisement out there, you’ll soon realize that most of them have quite catchy and irresistible titles. Obviously, these are created to reel you in, and still, 99% of the time, you click on them even though you know you’re being baited.
By having a creative headline, you make your article’s road to success much easier and the task around promoting it far less challenging, basically you let the headline do the heavy lifting for you. So the best way to describe headlines is as a marketing strategy for your posts/articles.

Drawing attention to the author or authors on your site may be a key piece of your overall strategy. Perhaps you’re trying to establish a more personal tone. Perhaps you’re trying to build a reputation. Perhaps you’re trying to attract quality contributors. These are but a few potential reasons why you might want to make sure your readers connect the content with the person writing it. Out of the box, WordPress provides users with a biographical info section in the User Profile screen where post authors and site users or members can add information about themselves.
Depending on your theme and how its settings are configured, information about the author can display in Post author archives…
And at the end of every post…
With some WordPress themes, however, you may find that all that glitters is not gold.
For example, you might want an author box that lifts your writers above the ground with cheerful thoughts and links to their social profiles, and discover that, while you love your theme with a love that shall not die, you can’t customize its bio boxes to your heart’s content.
So, do your current author boxes perform as well as they could?
Announcing $10,000 in waived fees from Freemius for sellers switching to subscriptions-first pricing, and the latest data covering the impact of coronavirus on WordPress plugin and theme downloads, installs, sales, and subscriptions.
There are a lot of uncertainties in the world right now due to coronavirus. Lockdowns have been placed on at least 20% of the global population, which has changed people’s lives very quickly (myself included). Everyone has some big questions on their minds: How bad will it get for my family, my business, my country, and the world? While many of us are stuck at home, let’s keep in mind that we’re all in the battle against the virus together. There’s a lot we can do in the meantime to prepare our plugin and theme businesses to be more successful on the other side, starting with looking at data to forecast where we might be in the next few months. While some companies are growing and hiring, others are struggling to adapt to the changing situation and declining rapidly. Through all this, we’ve seen global internet usage spike 10-20% because of the increase in people staying at home.
All these factors come together to impact WordPress developers differently, but one of the biggest indicators for WordPress as a whole – and specifically for plugin and theme devs – includes data on downloads, active installs, and new sales.

It’s not new to everyone that I’m a fan of the new WordPress block editor. In fact, I’ve been working on several projects to help everyone be accustomed to Gutenberg. Today, I’m super excited to launch a new plugin I’ve been working on lately. Introducing Iceberg, your distraction-free writing mode for the WordPress block editor. Why?
With the latest and upcoming Gutenberg updates, it’s getting clearer that WordPress aims to provide a page builder tool to the users. With the current user interface, it’s becoming harder to focus on just writing and publishing contents within WordPress.
Writers and even developers ( including me ) are relying on apps like Bear, Notes, Google Docs, and Paper, then pasting the content to block editor once done putting thoughts into words. Having a fully integrated writing mode on WordPress makes it a lot convenient for all of us to publish content on our websites.

However, you’ll want to pay attention to how you implement Google Translate on your WordPress site so that you can fully achieve the benefits of a multi language website when it comes to SEO and user experience.

The "If function" is one of the most basic functions that you can find in almost all programming languages or codes. It is very simple to understand and grasp in no time.
I love diversity, don’t you? The more I can edit and manipulate a specific thing, the better because it gives me many more options and customizability to create a really nice site. When I started off creating a site on WordPress, I opted to use simple tools and make things generally more easy and simple. Nowadays, I’m on the lookout to try and find plugins and ways to further complicate things, which will, in the end, make for a much better site with more functions.
A simple example is: If the user is from France, then show the language in French. This opens a whole lot of opportunities for developers because it gives them the opportunity to edit and create special user experiences that make the site seem more professional and legit.
Now that all of that is out of the way let’s dive into a plugin that gives you the opportunity to easily and quickly set up such functions on your site.
So, what is If Menu?

Without further ado, we would like to welcome you to the WpStream review, where we’ll take a deep dive into all the plugin’s features and by the end of which you’ll hopefully be persuaded to give this amazing plugin a shot.
Streaming as a medium has exploded in the past couple of years. We’ve all heard about Netflix as a prime example of a subscription-based service, or Twitch as a platform that hosts third-party streamers covering a wide range of topics. So it’s no surprise then that we’re seeing more and more sites embracing streaming and building their whole premise around it. Rather than opting for being hosted on a larger platform where there is a real chance your channel could get buried in the sheer number of available options. Creating a site where you’ll be publishing your own videos will ensure the attention is solely on you and over time, once your audience grows, it might prove to be even more beneficial than using a conventional platform.
Now there certainly are numerous ways you can go about setting up a site of this sort, and in this article, we’ll show you one way that we think is simple enough to use and provides you with everything you’ll need in your endeavor.

Finally! A solution to manage singular information like GTIN, UPC, EAN, ISBN, and MPN (Manufacturer Part Number) in WooCommerce.
There are several ways to create additional product information in WooCommerce – the most common is by creating Product Attributes, either as an Attribute taxonomy term or individually for each product, and then using those Product Attributes for variations. This is great for selectable variation attributes like Color, Size, etc., but does not work well for unique / singular information like GTIN, UPC, EAN, ISBN, and MPN (Manufacturer Part Number). What is required instead is a different way to manage this unique / singular information on the product editing page, which is then shown on the WooCommerce purchase page under the “Additional information” tab. Until now, only two plugins (both supported by the WPSSO Core Premium plugin) offered basic functionality for a single input field. What has been missing (until now) is a plugin to offer several input fields and to dynamically update the value(s) shown under the “Additional information” tab as different product variations are selected. A new WPSSO Product Metadata for WooCommerce add-on for WPSSO Core finally does all of this and more. :-)
The new SSO > WooCommerce Metadata settings page allows you
You can create staging sites in a few ways. The first one is with the help of a hosting provider that offers a staging feature as part of their services. The second way is using a plugin.
There is no question about whether changes are a necessity. They, along with updates, are what keeps a site running smoothly and up-to-date with the latest standards. But not all changes are functional changes. Some simply don’t work out and might even cause your site to suffer pretty negative consequences, even downtime if things go south. Now you might be thinking, “How can one freely add changes to a site without putting it in jeopardy?”. Well, there’s only one way, and that is by creating a staging site. A staging site is a clone of your leading site and is used by you or your development team to test out updates, plugins, and any changes you might want to add to your site. By doing this, you ensure that none of the changes will cause things to go horribly wrong and that you won’t be cursing your or someone else’s name for clicking the “apply changes to site” button.

Analysis of data extracted from the official WordPress Plugin directory through its API and explanation of some interesting points regarding WordPress plugin development trends.
The official WordPress plugin directory is one of the most important and popular sources for finding extensions for this content management system. There, you will find more than 50 thousand plugins available to do everything you can imagine with your website. WordPress plugin developers sometimes ask ourselves questions about what data we can get from the plugin directory. What trends are there currently? What is the next plugin to become popular?

Extracting Data From The Official WordPress.org Plugin Directory

It is true that it is not the most complete nor well documented API in the world, but it is something we can make use of. There is some data that the API does not provide,

Those of us who work with WordPress know that when creating a website where a certain number of videos are shown, you need to pay special attention to how the resources are used.
The Tik Tok community is one of the fastest-growing social media platforms in recent times. Unlike others, this platform has been specially created to share videos. Those of us who work with WordPress know that, when creating a website where a certain number of videos are shown, you need to pay special attention to how the resources are used.
Nobody wants to upload the video files to their website/server, as this can overload the website as the video directory grows.
On the other hand, other platforms that also support videos, such as YouTube, Instagram, or Vimeo, can be somewhat complicated when it comes to creating and publishing videos. In addition, if claims of copyright or non-compliance with any of the rules arise, the video in question could be directly deleted.
Tik Tok Plugin for WordPress
With this WordPress plugin for Tik Tok, it is possible to insert videos on a website without uploading any file to a server. Something very useful if you want to show a large number of videos at the same time.
Tik Tok plugin for WordPress allows displaying videos of a specific user or hashtag. It’s also possible to create multiple feeds for different users or hashtags.

If you are managing a WordPress site that is maintained by a group of people who need to have different access, then check out our latest post about WordPress user roles and permissions.
If you are managing a WordPress site that is maintained by a group of people who have access to your site’s data, you may want to consider learning about WordPress user roles and permissions. However, it is also important to consider file and folder permissions. By setting the correct permissions on your site for all elements, you further increase your security. The last thing you want is someone accidentally accessing a file they aren’t supposed to, changing the setting, and breaking your site, resulting in downtime.
But what about content and the people generating and posting it, the writers—how do you manage and set permissions for that part of the WordPress world?
There are plugins that make this process easier, but let’s first look strictly at what WordPress can do on its own.
WordPress User Roles & Permissions
WordPress comes with its own user role management system, so good news, you do not necessarily have to download a separate plugin to manage and set permissions for your writers—or anyone, for that matter.
Administrator: Top of the WordPress food chain. The administrator can add new posts, edit any posts, and delete posts. It doesn’t
